The Car was another amusing episode of "Samantha Who?"
6 December 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Samantha convinces her father to use his car for the first time since waking up from her coma. As she drives with Dena, Sam is being reckless on the road. So much so she manages to avoid hitting a raccoon but crashes into a tree. With Dena reluctantly helping, Sam pushes the car into a lake with the intent to report it as stolen so her dad can get the insurance money. This results in Sam's dad not only getting an alarm system for alerting him in more burglars but also giving Sam a new car in proving he can now trust his daughter. Uh-oh! Sam, sitting in her new car, sees her bad old self in the upper windshield mirror winking at her as she feels guilt. At that point, her mom comes over. Sam confesses everything. Mom uses this knowledge to make her daughter model some clothes for some neighbors, especially for the mother of an upcoming actress she's jealous about. Meanwhile, Andrea, upset about being stood up by Sam and Dena the previous night during the accident she doesn't know about, finds out the truth after confronting Dena and her dogs (she was told the reason she was stood up was because Sam was on the phone for hours with a vet). As she and Dena go to Sam's house and Sam confesses her story, Andrea shakes her up to make her remember a previous night long ago-when Sam and her mom had pushed Mom's car in the same lake for the same purpose also for insurance money. Sam then resolves to get even with her by bringing that car on the driveway and ripping the tow-truck yellow pages from the phone book Mom looks in. As the father learns the whole truth, his wife denies her part of the story. Sam is allowed to keep her car anyway and helps her dad push the car back in the lake since he doesn't want trouble from the insurance company. They hug and the episode ends as Sam drives away...Not as funny as the others but still very amusing throughout. My favorite line came from Sam's mom about Andrea: "There's one dress that would make you look as good going out at night as when you're stumbling in the morning." Interesting to see Sam turn a little into her old self but still thinking she's changed for the better before realizing how much of her old behavior was the result of her mother's attitude. Too bad with "Dancing with the Stars" absent as a lead-in, "Samantha Who?" ratings went a little down. Still, I'm guessing they were strong enough for ABC to still have faith in extending the show's season through to the end. Now if only the writers' strike were settled soon...
